Loneliness is an epidemic. A recent survey revealed the ten loneliest countries in the world included Brazil, Kenya, and the United States. Loneliness isn’t a new experience nor one unique to our modern era. The Bible tracks loneliness through the ages. And yet God bends into our loneliness with a promise to be with us. How can we understand our own loneliness? And how can we embrace God’s antidote for this condition: His invitation into ongoing relationship? This week, we’ll focus on the pain of loneliness—acknowledging how very real the experience is for us all. Next week, we’ll look at how God meets us so that we are never really alone.
